This Story Gives Me the Sads

Marie Moore Leaves Note: 'I Had to Send My Son to Heaven and Myself to Hell'
By The Staff at

On Sunday, Marie Moore, 44, was at a Shoot Straight gun range in Casselberry, Florida, about 20 minutes north of Orlando, when she went behind her son Mitchell with a rented revolver and fatally opened fire. She then shot herself. Her 20-year-old son died on the scene, while Moore passed away hours later in the hospital.

Now authorities reveal that they’ve found three suicide notes and audio tapes which indicate premeditation. The notes, obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, read that Marie had to "send my son to heaven and myself to hell." Notes were addressed to "King" and signed from "Queen.

Dear King
I love you. The money tape and [title] to my trucks all in order. I’m so sorry. I had to save my son. The tape explains everything. I’ll love you forever and ever.
The keys I left in the truck. You have the signed over title: Get it 19133 [combination]I love youI’m so sorry. I had to send my son to heaven and myself to Hell.Failed Queen

On audio tapes left for her family, police and the gun range owners, Moore apologized for what she was about to do. She said God made her the ‘Antichrist,’ reports the Sentinel, and that she must die to save her boyfriend, son and the world from violence, and her mother, father and brother from hell. She said God told her while she was in a mental hospital: You have a gun, you can do it … I have to die and go to hell so there can be a thousand years peace on Earth.

Mitchell’s father, Charles Moore, told police that Marie Moore was involuntarily committed to a Florida mental hospital in 2002 after attempting to commit suicide.
